's squawk on the street david faber, and doug lebda. good to have you both onboard this morning. it seems to me housing always seems like a separate issue that maybe didn't get talked about as much. is that retrospectively incorrect? because it does seem so fundamental, david. >> it's fundamental in the economy in many ways. certainly helped us during the boom period in housing that we saw adding to gdp, construction, and so many other things. people refinancing their homes. it hasn't been discussed that much, you're right, particularly given that the president seems to have backed off a bit, perhaps, on a number of plans that would've relieved people from mortgages that they otherwise are not in a great position to pay but there was a lot of political opposition to that. but housing is starting to come back. we are starting to see real signs of not just stabilization but even perhaps some growth. doug can speak, i'm sure, to some more of the specifics about what we're seeing, but even new home sales, existing home sales, and prices finally have not just stabilized. >> steve rattner? >> t

they send doug pfister to the mound. >> crazy after the game, they flash on the big jumbotron, tim smoke. it's an interesting park out there. >> it is. it's a great place. >> seriously, you're wearing that tie, in tribute. >> i like to think of the giants as a team of destiny. i like to think of this tie as a tie of destiny. >> keep thinking. >> president obama was on "leno" last night, talked about a wide range of things including this world series. here's what he said. >> this is one of those presidential decisions. no matter what you say, it's going to upset some people. you're going to vegas. you going to place a bet on the world series? who do you got? >> well, they're both great teams. detroit beat -- [ cheers ] -- they beat my white sox out of a pennant. they're an outstanding team. i will say that, you know, i have spent a lot of time in detroit lately. you know, i didn't want to let detroit go bankrupt. >> right, right. [ cheers and applause ] >> in this particular world series, i may be a little partial. >> but i want to point out one other thing. before tonight's game two of the w

of the second. doug pfister takes a line drive right off the head. it bounces into the outfield with a hit. amazing he pfister would stay in the game. he said after the game that he's fine. >> of course, he was tasting purple the rest of the night, but still, the guy has a hard head. >> scoreless in the sixth. giants' starter madison ba baumgartner gets omar infante. gregor blanco lays down the beautiful bunt just inside the foul line to load the bases. giants would eventually score in the inning. that's all they'd need. they'd win game two by a final of 2-0 and go up 2-0. the series moves to detroit tomorrow for game three. >> finally, tim tebow in the news again. he's added yet another award to his trophy case, but this one, not quite as good as the heisman. in a recent "sports illustrated" survey of players, tim was overwhelmingly chosen as the most overrated player in the league. they gave him the dubious distinction of being the most overrated. he's yet to score a touchdown as a role player with the jets this season, but they're not giving him a chance so you can't knock him for that.
